We know second and third marriages often go down without fanfare, but we’re still a bit surprised that Kate Winslet didn’t tell us all about her plans to marry her spectacularly named boyfriend Ned Rocknroll this month. According to E! Online, the Oscar winner’s rep confirmed that the couple wed in New York earlier this month in front of “her two children and a very few friends and family” after getting engaged over the summer. Actually, we shouldn’t take it personally that she forgot to invite us — according to The Sun, even their dads didn’t know the wedding had taken place. Or that’s what they told the tab, anyway. The U.K. paper also reported that Kate’s Titanic co-star Leonardo DiCaprio gave her away.
Winslet and Rocknroll (born Abel Smith) have been dating for a little over a year, ever since they both escaped that dramatic fire at Ned’s Uncle Richard Branson’s private island estate. Yes, it was that time when Kate reportedly carried Branson’s 90-year-old mother, Eve, out of the burning building. Those kind of heroics could win any man’s heart, right? (Though, oops, Kate was there with another guy at the time!)
This is Winslet’s third marriage, after Jim Threapleton and Sam Mendes. Rocknroll works for his uncle’s Virgin Galactic, but no word yet on whether they’ll honeymoon in space.
